Adding Berries or Raisins in Baking

When adding berries, raisins, etc. to cake batter or cookie dough, first roll them in flour. This will keep them from sinking to the bottom of the dough, and you'll have fruit throughout, instead of only on the bottom.

Buy Double

The next time you purchase ground beef (chicken, turkey, etc.), purchase double the amount that you usually use and brown it immediately when you get home. You can put it in freezer bags or bowls and just pull it out whenever you need to use it (spaghetti, chili, tacos, etc.) It's a great time saver for busy moms (and dads!)

Cooking Fish

Do not salt fish while cooking. Salt will cause the fish to fall apart. Salt after removing it from the pan.

Knotted Onion Storage

We use old hose to help store large sweet onions. We place one in the bottom foot part of the hose and tie a knot then another one and a knot, etc. till full. Then hang from the ceiling in a cool dark place. When you want an onion then snip off one below the next knot. We have kept onions like this for up to 6 months. My mother-in-law kept them longer however she has a basement to hang hers in.
